Why Are Casinos on Cruises Such a Rip Off for Gamblers?


I just returned from a journey to Cozumel and I’m not sure why the voyage lines don’t offer better paying games in their gambling clubs. Their video poker games are horrendous (6/5 Jacks or Better) and their blackjack rules aren’t vastly improved.

A 6/5 video poker machine implies you get compensated 6 coins for every coin bet for a full house, and 5 coins for each coin bet for a flush. A decent video poker machine should pay 9 coins for a full house and 6 for a flush. They offered a solitary deck blackjack game yet the blackjack payout was 6:5 rather than the customary 3:2 which gives the club an additional a benefit. I surmise they’ve taken the position that the higher their benefit, the more cash they put in their pockets. That is hypothetically obvious, however that way of thinking frequently misfires.

While on board I would visit the gambling club to investigate. I saw for all intents and purposes nobody was wagering any critical cash and it was never actually that swarmed thinking about the size and number of individuals ready. Most Blackjack wagers were $5-$10 and many opening players were in a real sense wagering a penny on the penny spaces. The video poker machines were basically unfilled for the greater part of the excursion.

I’ve been on a few travels on various journey lines in the course of recent years, and each time I had comparable encounters in the club. This is anything but a disconnected circumstance, it is boundless.

What journey lines neglect to acknowledge is that they have frightened away any genuine speculators by offering such helpless compensation games. It is generally expected information that the club on travels vigorously favor the “house.” Therefore, individuals who truly prefer to bet either avoid going on travels or then again on the off chance that they go they don’t bet, myself notwithstanding.

Going on a journey is an extravagance not every person can manage, so clearly a great many people on board are monetarily well of. The cash is there however from what I’ve seen, it’s not being utilized in the club.

As I would see it, on the off chance that they would offer around 9/6 Jacks or Better video poker machines and more great guidelines for blackjack it would urge more individuals to bet and to bet at higher stakes. There are a few different things they could do to work on the club also. I saw they have begun offering comps. This is a decent beginning, yet until their choice further develops I don’t figure individuals will go on a journey to bet.
